Boob Pillows, Figures, LCL: The Drink, Where Do I Start?

Gigazine has some...interesting merch from AOU2010.

Gigazine has written up several products, each of which I could probably make a whole new post about, but somehow that doesn't seem fair, so I guess I should group them together-- but man, where do I start?



The Good:

There are some nice Bakemonogatari figures (nice for game prizes, mind), including one of Senjougahara wielding a stapler. Rawr! There's also a Tsubasa Hanekawa.



The Bad:

I keep forgetting that supernatural moe fanservice anime Kanokon's second season hasn't actually aired yet, meaning that I can't yet push it entirely off of my radar yet. Gigazine has pics of a new Kanokon product: a breast pillow, which is a pillow with fanservicey art and apparently a giant lump where the breasts are in the art. Like a tumor-pillow. Iiiii don't think so.



The Weird:

In the never-ending quest to find new things to merchandise for Evangelion, how about an apple-flavored beverage that's being marketed as LCL fluid? Yeahhh. It comes in a cardboard tube thing that's supposed to look like one of the LCL tubes (but fails); the actual drink comes in a little plastic tube that you snip and drink from. Just don't try to breathe it.

There's a lot of other stuff you should check out, including some nice So Ra No Wo To figures (hey, a meh show can have great figures) and two one-foot high Gundam models, one of the RX-78-2 and one of RX-0 Unicorn. So hit up Gigazine for the rest!

Meh i would have taken Chizuru as a mouse-pad would have been much better.:)

Someone should send the LCL drank to Giantbomb.

@Konanda: Hmmmmmmmm. Maybe I will...

I like boob mousepads because they actually are handy because i wouldn't have to keep my wrist bending all the time but boob pillows? now that`s really a single man/lesbian`s product. if i want that i`ll just hop over to my girlfriend`s place and use her as pillow :P
 
Stapler girl figure is awesome.

I really like those so ra no wo to figures.  Still haven't seen any of the show yet.

That boob pillow is the logical evolution of the lap pillow. Why did it take so long, Japan?

I'd say its more about diversity than an total move ^_^
 
I dunno, could be comfortable.
